Since I've died alot in the frontline today I got to try that tankflying simulator for several minutes and that got me thinking that maybe that maybe IL-2 Sturmovik will be that prestige lvl 10 reward. Its a russian tank assult plane and it will fit great with the tempo WG is try to get in the game with wheeled tanks. WG has allso demostrated that they get the flying tech, and IL-2 Sturmovik help the game evolve is the fast pace direction they are trying.

 

Anyone else thing hat IL-2 could be the reeward?

Will you keep paying and playing if it is? As it seems nothing can make people leave as is. So why not? No one plays WOWP anyway. At least now people will fly something Wg made.

Good memories...

never managed to get 10 meters off the ground in it :). Always wend nose-dive over the wing.

Except that the IL-2 is a tier 5-6 plane in WoWP. :trollface:

I played the first version of IL-2 Sturmovik a very long time ago, and it was a great game, and now it's rubbish.

Nice do you steal ideas from "War Thunder" while planes can attack tanks combination while WG launch broken wheelies in game.

Maybe it's bad compared to the later IL-2 releases?

 

Me and a couple of friends had great fun with this game around 2000-2005. I could spend an entire evening playing alone, just practicing crazy takeoffs and landings. I even made stunt flying videos with stall recovery, flying upside down under bridges etc. My proudest moment was when I made a vertical takeoff at the end of the runway, continued straight up until the plane stalled, fell backwards, straightened it up going vertical down again and landing on the strip with full flaps.

 

Oh the memories...

Yep, although my cousins forbade using it when we LANned because at one point it was totally broken, almost unstallable and could outturn anything. It was so energy efficient it was ridiculous.

Check gog or maybe Steam. Tends to be around 20ish. Was The latest sold version 1946? That at least includes all previous add-ons.

 

Also get a flightstick, really needs it.
